Minnesota poll: Kurt Bills, when all else fails blame the poll
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kurt Bills campaign says a Star Tribune Minnesota Poll that shows incumbent Democrat Amy Klobuchar with a substantial lead in the race is biased, a charge that Star Tribune leaders dispute.
In a news release on Thursday, Bills campaign manager Mike Osskopp said the poll oversampled Democrats and said, "Don't forget, Amy's Dad was a columnist for the Star Tribune for 3 decades. It's no coincidence that they are pulling for Daddy's little girl." Later, Osskopp e-mailed a fundraising appeal to supporters that said "Daddy's newspaper needs to protect daddy's little girl."
and here is the killer:
More than 60 percent of those polled said they did not recognize Bills' name.
